The Latest Vintage of Domaine d’Aupilhac, Montpeyroux

Jenn and I have been big fans of Domaine d’Aupilhac having enjoyed many bottles of the 2007 and 2009.  Both vintages have been one of my favorite wines under $20. The 2010 vintage recently hit the shelves at MacArthur Beverages so we were sure to promptly pull the cork.  Tasted over two nights this bottle remained quite tight.  The components and track record are there so I would stick this in the cellar for a year.  In reviewing my post on the 2009 (you may read it here) it too was initially quite tight.  However, a few bottles tasted in October were remarkably tasty and much more open.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Domaine d’Aupilhac, Montpeyroux, Coteaux du Languedoc – $19
Imported by Kermit Lynch.  This wine is a blend of 30% Mourvedre, 25% Syrah, 25% Carignan, 16% Grenache, and 4% Cinsault.  It was fermented with indigenous yeasts then aged for 20 months in old foudres and oak barrels.  Alcohol 14%.  The color is a medium, youthful purple ruby.  Tried over two nights the light nose remained tight but was complex with mixed berries.  In the mouth the wine was structured with a firm profile and flavors of blacker red fruit and stones.  There are integrated, fine drying tannins and stone flavors in the finish and aftertaste.  **(*) 2014-2022.
